JSENSE consults directly with parents and carers to ensure their views are heard.
JSENSE provides resources, communities, training, and experiences that enhance the lives of parents and carers of children and young people with SEND.
Parents have told us that finding pathways through the systems related to provision for children with SEND is complex and that they need support in understanding the route to services for assessment, diagnosis, and support for their children.
In response to these requests JSENSE has:
JSENSE has provided “Good to Know “sessions with speakers from local SEND services, speech and language sessions in addition to parenting sessions.
More recently, due to the Covid emergency, JSENSE has moved all of our speaker and community events online. These events have included eminent international speakers such as Rabbi Noach Orwolek of Yeshivas Torah Ohr and Rabbi Kalman Samuels of the Shalva Centre in Jerusalem.
We are currently developing an online parent network.
